Each fall, the Yosemite Leadership Program accepts a new cohort of participants into the campus-based, co-curricular leadership development program. These groups are kept small intentionally to provide participants with a personal, high-quality experience in leadership development. Most cohort activities for the 2015-2016 academic year will occur on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm. All participants are required to participate in a Yosemite Retreat on the weekend of September 17-18.
Applications for Fall 2016 are now open! Applications due no later than midnight, Tuesday, September 6th, 2016.
